Abstract

GaAsN/GaAsN:H heterostructures were made by an in-plane selective hydrogen incorporation controlled by H-opaque metallic masks. The strain field and hydrogen distributions in GaAsN micro-sized wires thus obtained have been mapped by an all optical procedure that combines micro-Raman scattering and photoreflectance spectroscopy. The strain field is related to the formation of N-H complexes along the hydrogen diffusion profile with an ensuing expansion of the GaAsN lattice whose patterning generates an anisotropic stress in the sample growth plane. These results highlight a powerful non-invasive tool to simultaneously determine both the H diffusion profile and the related strain field distribution.
